At the elementary campus
, each grade conducts its own community service project. Recently, the 4th grade's ecology action project spread campus-wide in its efforts to bring awareness to recycling and waste reduction. Various grades also maintain a school garden for the pleasure of the whole community. Additionally, students help parents in all-school community service projects such as the Food Drive in the fall, the Toy and Book Drive during the holidays, and the Clothing Drive in the spring. The goal with our youngest learners is to engage students in meaningful activities whose results are evident to the children.
At the secondary campus, community engagement provides a structure for students to reflect on others’ needs, engage with their community, and act as local and global citizens. While 8th grade students take a community leadership course, all high school students are required to complete a community engagement proposal and demonstrate their commitment to projects connected to specific Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
